Reimagined Screenshot Tool to Enhance Communication and Sharing

Take a Quick Screenshot with Screencast-O-MaticScreenshots can be an essential tool to communicate and share ideas.  As part of our continued effort to provide simple and intuitive solutions for screen capture and sharing, we’ve made screenshots a core experience of our software tools.

A screenshot tool needs to be easy to use while offering flexibility for image enhancements and sharing. The tool should let you quickly capture, enhance, and share without having to use multiple apps. It should also work when you’re offline.

Screencast-O-Matic now features a completely redesigned screenshot tool. It adopts our user-friendly design and integrates it into our new hosting platform.  It’s a seamless integration where you can manage both your screenshot images and video content. You can launch the new screenshots tool from the web or desktop.
